to Clifton Down and Avonmouth

Clifton Down Railway TunnelThe pictures I took today are more "record pictures" than ones of any artistic merit or prettiness - we took the day out, and headed for Avonmouth because, like Everest, it's there. I didn't much know what to expect, and the threatening mills that tower above the skyline were dulled for the photographer by the dullness of the day, the station bright in parts yet the railway weed-ridden, and the trains amongst the oldest and most basic running on the main railway system of this country.

Yet there is still a beauty in the curves of the tracks as they bend into the tunnel under Clifton Down, the green of the trees surrounding the cutting and the black circle of the tunnel.


And here and there a bright splash of colour ... here at Montpelier Station where the Graffiti painters have turned to artists.
